'Female politicians are more trustworthy' - Olusegun Obasanjo

Former president Olusegun Obasanjo has urged Nigerian women to get more involved in political activities, saying from his experience, female politicians are more trustworthy than their male counterparts.    

Obasanjo, who spoke at a retreat in support of women’s participation in government, political processes and the work place organized by the Initiative for Information, Arts and Culture Development in Nigeria in conjunction with the American Corner, Ibadan, cited the number of men who were prosecuted for several corrupt cases compared to women, and other factors as evidence of his assertion.  

In the keynote address, Obasanjo said women’s contributions to the nation’s Gross Domestic Product (GDP) were higher. “No nation will become great when half of her population ends up only in the kitchen and ‘the other room’, or get disproportionately discriminated against in the higher echelon of corporate management and in governance.”  

He called for more effort to remove barriers to women in attaining higher positions in politics, adding, “All hindrances to free and compulsory girl-child education in Nigeria for the first nine years of formal school such as culture, religion and so on should be stopped. Child marriage should be made unlawful, girls must be able to receive formal education from primary to tertiary level. This gathering could not have come at a better time than now, when everyone is looking forward to the politics of 2019.”

Woman gives birth in restaurant restroom; baby offered free food for life and a guaranteed job when she's 16

Woman gives birth in restaurant restroom; baby offered free food for life and a guaranteed job when she
A woman took an unplanned bathroom break at Chick-Fil-A and ended up delivering her baby there in the restaurant's restroom.

Falon Griffin began having contractions on Tuesday. She and her husband Robert Griffin made a stop on their way to San Antonio, Texas’ University Hospital to meet up with a family friend at a local Chick-Fil-A store so they could drop off their two older daughters with them before going to deliver their baby.

As they stopped, Falon realized she needed to use the bathroom. It was after 10 p.m. at the time and Chick-Fil-A was closed but the couple banged on the windows to try and get the staff’s attention because Falon didn’t feel like she could wait until they got to the hospital.

Falon was allowed inside while her husband waved goodbye to the kids. Afterward, Robert went inside the store and was told by the manager that his wife was “screaming” in the restroom, only for him to learn that she was in the process of giving birth.

Writing about it in a Facebook post that has since gone viral, Robert said: "Last night I delivered our baby girl IN THE BATHROOM AT A CHICK-FIL-A!"

Later, Robert told KENS-TV: "I can see just the top of Gracelyn’s head, just barely crowning, but I knew we couldn’t go anywhere. So I told her, ‘Sweetie, we’re gonna do something great, and we’re gonna do it right here and we’re gonna do it right now'."

“I couldn’t control it,” his wife added. “I was basically [straddling] the toilet — I wasn’t even sitting down. I was literally standing giving birth, with one hand on the wall and one hand holding her head.”

However, during the delivery, Robert wrote on Facebook that he noticed that the child’s umbilical cord "was wrapped around her neck twice." Not wanting to worry his wife, Robert “told her to relax for a minute and I was somehow able to unwrap the chord [sic] from the baby’s neck.”

“With two more strong pushes, and using my shirt for a towel, out came Gracelyn Mae Violet Griffin,” he wrote, adding that “paramedics arrived 15 minutes later” and that “everyone’s healthy.”

Continuing, the proud father wrote, “Her birth certificate reads ‘Born in Chick-Fil-A’ and the hospital had me sign the birth certificate as the attending physician. ?”

In honor of the unexpected delivery, the popular franchise will give her free food for life and has also guaranteed her a job as soon as she turns 16.

'Meghan Markle would be blamed if our father dies' - Half sister, Samantha Grant launches new attack

Meghan Markle's half-sister, Samantha Grant escalated a family feud with a series of angry tweets on her private account targeting the former actress saying, “my father is not an embarrassment for loving his daughter! The Royals are an embarrassment for being so cold”.

“You should be ashamed of yourselves @KensingtonRoyal. How about you pay tribute to your own father?! Enough is enough. Act like a humanitarian act like a woman! If our father dies I’m holding you responsible, Meg!” Grant said.    

Grant’s outburst occurred two days after Meghan’s father, Thomas Markle, told The Sun that he thought the new Duchess of Sussex looked “terrified” to be a royal and that she hadn’t spoken to him since the day after her wedding to Prince Harry. It also coincided with photos that showed the couple attending an exhibit that honored Nelson Mandela on Tuesday.

Universal Music Group to launch strategic division in Nigeria

First marquee label signings include acclaimed artists Tekno, Stonebwoy, Vanessa Mdee & Mr Eazi
Universal Music Group (UMG), the world leader in music-based entertainment, today announced a significant expansion of operations within Western Africa, with the launch of Universal Music Nigeria. This new strategic division, will operate from a new office in Lagos, under the leadership of seasoned music executive Ezegozie Eze Jr., who has been named General Manager of Universal Music Nigeria.

Eze and his team will support artists from Nigeria, Ghana, and Gambia throughout the continent and beyond, utilizing Universal Music Group’s global networks for wider discovery, marketing, promotion and distribution. Eze, has previously held roles at Channel O Television, Empire Mates Entertainment (Banky W & WizKid) and was a founder of Pan-African creative companies, Republic 54, Alore Group, and Duma Collective, brings vital experience in the Nigerian music market. He will report to Sipho Dlamini, MD, Universal Music South Africa and Sub-Saharan Africa.

The label has signed a host of Nigerian-born artists including WurlD, Odunsi (the Engine), Tay Iwar, and Ghanaian-born artists Cina Soul and Stonebwoy. In addition, the label has recently signed marquee deals with acclaimed Banku singer and songwriter Mr Eazi for pan-African releases, co-signed Nigerian artist Tekno in conjunction with Island Records UK and Tanzanian singer and songwriter Vanessa Mdee in conjunction with AfroForce1 Records/Universal Music Central Europe/Universal Music South Africa. These two signings mark the first time UMG labels from the two continents have combined to sign and release African artists globally, with other artist partnerships in the pipeline with UMG labels from around the world.

In making the announcement, Dlamini said, “In recent years there has been an increase in visibility of Nigerian and Ghanaian music and its influence on contemporary music around the world. Eze and his team are perfectly placed to support, nurture and help develop artists and musicians from the region, whilst creating opportunities for new talent from the region to reach the widest possible audience.”

Eze commented, “I am delighted to be officially launching Universal Music’s Nigerian division at such an exciting time for African music around the world. The world’s largest music company opening an office within the region is a huge statement of belief in our local music talent. The signings we have already made show our ambition to help our artists reach the widest global audience and we are looking forward to working closely with our UMG label partners around the world to make that happen.”

Universal Music Group to launch strategic division in Nigeria

This new division will work in partnership with existing UMG operations throughout the continent including Cote D’Ivoire, Morocco and alongside key markets across English-speaking Africa in order to offer artists comprehensive opportunities throughout the region and provide pan-African talent the best possible launch pad for wider international success.

Universal Music Group operates two successful live music companies within Africa, both of which will also have divisions within Universal Music Nigeria. Launched in 2017 in Johannesburg, UMG Live Africa has quickly become one of the leading talent booking agencies within the continent. It has succesfully helped redefine the role of a booking agency within Africa, with a broad roster of artists made up of both UMG talent and non-UMG signed artists making more than 600 performances throughout 2017. ULive Africa was founded in 2016 and is engaged in staging, producing, programming and hosting large-scale live concerts and events throughout Africa including Runway Jazz, the innaugral African Comedy Awards, Lekki Sunsplash (30th Anniversary Edition), The Music Industry Awards in Nigeria, Afrochella and Baskets & Wine in Ghana, and Cocktails in the Wild in Uganda and Nigeria, with several other exciting projects in the pipeline.

Universal Music Group is also working closely in partnership with parent company Vivendi, and several of its divisions including CanalOlympia, Vivendi and Canal+ to support and develop the live music industry throughout the continent.

Universal Music Nigeria is currently developing plans to open a recording studio in Lagos in order to further advance the recording facilities available to local African talent. It will become UMG’s second fully purposed studio within Africa, alongside the existing facility in Johannesburg, South Africa.

Through these strategic investments, initiatives and executive appointments, UMG is accelerating the company’s focus on growing the entire African music ecosystem including recorded music, music publishing, production, live events, brand partnerships and merchandising efforts.

''I’m not afraid of EFCC, I won’t run away from Nigeria''Governor Fayose says

Ekiti state governor, Ayo Fayose, has said that he is not afraid of the antigraft agency, EFCC, and that he has no reason to run away from Nigerian. Fayose who spoke through his media aide, Lere Olayinka, said this while reacting to a tweet the antigraft agency posted yesterday in which they insinuated that they would soon be coming after him.

EFCC tweeted this and has since deleted it.
Reacting to the tweet, Lere Olayinka in an interview with Premiumtimes, said
“He is not afraid of anything. What are they going to do to him. Is EFCC the court of law? Since 2015 that they started talking about Sambo Dasuki, how many Nigerians have they convicted? That was how they lied that the governor had a property on Gana Street in Maitama and nothing came out of it. The governor will hand over when the day comes in October. And if it is necessary that he should go to the EFCC for questioning after leaving office, he will go and meet them.” he said

Obama visits Kenyan home to launch youth centre

Former US president Barack Obama visited his ancestral home in Kenya today to launch a state-of-the-art youth centre run by his half-sister.
This is Obama's first trip to Kenya since 2015. At the time he visited Kenya as a sitting president in 2015, he was unable to visit his ancestral home as his jet was too big to land in the western city of Kisumu, he recalled. During his recent visit, Obama recounted fond memories of his family home.

"It is a joy to be back with so many people who are family to me, and so many people who claim to be family. Everybody’s a cousin!" Obama joked and it was met with laughter from the audience.

Barak Obama with his step-grandmother Sarah and half-sister, Auma arrive to unveil a plaque on July 16, 2018

After a visit to the home of his step-grandmother Sarah Obama in the village of Kogelo, where his father was born and is buried, Obama recalled his first trip to Kenya at the age of 27.
From Nairobi he took first a "very slow train" and then a bus with "some chickens in my lap and some sweet potatoes digging into my side". Then he had to pile into a matatu — a minibus taxi — "even more crowded than the bus", before a long walk to "Mama" Sarah’s house.
He remembered having to catch a chicken for dinner, which he was "a little squeamish" to kill himself, visiting his father’s grave and bathing outdoors.
"And I looked up at the stars and… it gave me a sense of satisfaction that no five-star hotel could ever provide," he said.

Obama visits Kenyan home to launch youth centre

Obama was speaking at the launch of the Sauti Kuu (Swahili for "Strong Voices") centre set up by his half-sister Auma Obama. He said that looking back on those memories, he "couldn’t be prouder of what my sister has built".
Auma said the state-of-the-art centre would give local youth access to books, internet and sporting activities.
Upon Obama's arrival in Kenya on Sunday, he paid courtesy calls on Kenya President Uhuru Kenyatta and main opposition leader Raila Odinga.
